As we close in on President Donald Trump’s first 200 days in office it is becoming clearer each day that the Republican establishment is not delivering on the repeal and replacing of ObamaCare, along with big battles ahead on Tax Reform, and his new Immigration law proposal. The lack of ability to control their own party is killing Trump's chances to have even one major legislative victory.
President Donald Trump is mad after watching the Senate Republicans fail to get enough votes to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act (ObamaCare), something the Republican party has promised their supporters for the past seven years. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky), failed to get just 50 votes to pass the most stripped down bill possible aimed at just moving the process to the next step.
Candidate Donald Trump promised his voters that he would repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act (ObamaCare), while at the same time promising the voters “the best health care in the world.” President Trump is so hung up on a political win that he has pushed Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell to the brink of disrupting health care in the United States to the point of insanity.
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.), made the official pronouncement of death for the repeal and replacement of the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare) Monday night at 10:25 p.m. The announcement came after two key members of the Republican led Senate announced they could no longer support the bill and that made it four hard no votes making it impossible for McConnell to bring the proposed legislation to the floor for a vote and killing the bill.
Millions of Floridians are looking at the future of health care in the state as well as the country and they are full of uncertainty. At this moment Republicans are facing the dilemma of passing one of the worst pieces of major legislation in history just so they can make good on their promise to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act also known as Obamacare.
In a bruising setback, Senate Republican leaders shelved a vote on their prized health care bill Tuesday until at least next month, forced to retreat by a GOP rebellion that left them lacking enough votes to even begin debate. “We will not be on the bill this week,” Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., told reporters in what was a remarkable reversal of plans to push one of President Donald Trump’s and the GOP’s top priorities through the chamber this week.
Sen. Mitch McConnell could not get the votes to get the Better Care Reconciliation Act of 2017 to the floor let alone bring it to a vote as he planned before the July 4th recess. This is a postponement and there could be a vote after the Senators return from the July 4th recess. At 4 p.m. all of the Republican members of the Senate are headed to the White House for a meeting with President Donald Trump. It is clear that President Trump is not pleased with the bill, he still feels that the bill lacks the heart he thinks it needs.

Senate Republicans released their long-awaited bill Thursday to dismantle much of Barack Obama’s health care law, proposing to cut Medicaid for low-income Americans and erase tax boosts that Obama imposed on high-earners and medical companies to finance his expansion of coverage. The bill would provide tax credits to help people buy insurance. It would also let states get waivers to ignore some coverage standards that “Obamacare” requires of insurers.
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Kent.) is leading the Republicans in the Senate to pass their version the American Heath Care Act that will serve as their replacement for the Affordable Care Act, also known as Obamacare. They are working off a template created by the House who passed their version of the bill back in May. Let us be very clear on the issue the Republicans are doing this to be able to say that they made good on a seven year promise of repealing and replacing of Obamacare. They really don’t care about working on a long term, well-crafted bill that would improve health care, this is about a cheap political win.
